Headphones

Any suggestions on a good pair of headphones for the gym. Like to stay under $100.

Thanks!

no highs, no lows... it's bose!

head on over to AVForums.com Home or Head-Fi.org: Headphones, iPod earphones, portable audio, MP3 players, high-end audio

tell them what you like.. budget, they'll give you some really good recommendations

like for me I can't wear the in-ear style ones because of cauliflower ear

Bose is really overpriced and not worth it.

Re: Headphones

You're in for an experience on this. I spent probably an entire year searching for gym usable ear phones. Any over the ear models were totally out for obvious reasons. Relegated to the ear bud types I then went on a sojourn of something like 10 pairs. Between quality issues and ear comfort it was a major pain in the ass. In general the more expensive ones sounded great but had fit issues or were uncomfortable. I tried several...the Bose were sound superior but didn't work for running(fell out) and were surprisingly not the most comfortable. Sony's were a flop..they fell out a lot. Never tried the Senn's. Tried a few high end Phillips that sounded good and seemed good quality. But alas I had the same falling out issue. Then I decided to screw sound quality(hell I'm running half the time..the sound quality is going to be hard to appreciate anyways). That opened up the comfort and fit options. JVC makes an Air-cushion set that has like a spongy foam ear piece that never falls out and hasn't once hurt my ears. MY cat chewed the ear-piece up and I almost killed her. The sound is probably only slightly above average. Not bad(no tinnyness or flatness) but nothing special for sure. But functionally they are head and shoulders above. Head phones under $40 are going to all have quality issues, at least most likely. And being used in the gym they're gonna be used in an overly active way. I suspect anything more than a year out them will be a bonus.

Long story short...depending on your ears it could be easy or hard to ind something that will work.

Yeah I tend to agree. They have several products that are simply amazing...the rest of their stuff rarely ranges above good but is priced as amazing.

Head phones are a seriously individual thing.

Re: Headphones

Yeah headphones are definitely an individual thing. Along with the Senns I also use a cheap pair of skull candy phones ($15) from Target for the gym and they're great. I agree about not getting too hung up on the sound. I just want something that's not going to fall out of my ears when I'm working out.

Re: Headphones

I decide to keep my comfy no good sounding Sony ones. It wraps around your ear, ear buds never have worked for me ever.

Re: Headphones

I've got two sets of headphones that I use equally and are pretty great. I have a cheap pair of earbuds that I use specifically for the gym that work fine, and I bought a pair of Sony-MDR-V6 cans that I use on roadtrips or anywhere else where I only want to hear my music in a loud environment. The cans sound way better than the buds, but both serve their intended purpose. I've had the cans for about 4 months now and I'm definitely satisfied with them, for 60 bucks they were definitely worth it.

Over the ear? Like behind the head or over the head? Or over the ear like.. Not ear buds?

Re: Headphones

I've got two sets... my normal ones are the crappy ear buds that come with random mp3s players and they're actually pretty good (and disposable).

for loud environments (like uninsulated aircraft) I use my davis clarks... you can still hear people talking directly to you when the music is off, but outside that... silence. also free... well, except for the four year committment .
